Mindy Kaling Joins Disney+ ‘Monsters at Work’ as it Eyes July Release Date
Disney+ has been a resounding success, constantly adding new content from within Disney’s umbrella of ownership and offering new life to franchises of the past. One company that’s found a home at Disney+ is Pixar, a staple in the animation world. Many new and original projects got announced during the streaming service’s debut presentation. One of which was an original animated series, Monsters at Work. The series would see the return of Mike and Sully. The monster duo from Pixar’s 2001 film, Monsters, Inc., will return to their daily lives in the titular company.
The series takes place after the original film. It will follow the newcomer, Tylor Tuskmon, as he lands a job at Monsters, Inc. fresh out of college. Tuskmon had always dreamed of being a Scarer, but, upon arrival, discovers that the company has since shifted to collecting children’s laughter. The change came from when Mike and Sully discovered that it’s ten times more powerful. After a long wait, we finally get our first look at the new monster designs:
